Yes, you definetely need battery replacement.
As the hart rate monitoring is most sophisticated part of the device, it has more IC (Integrated Circuits) than any other features.
More IC's means more power is needed, so, if the heart rate monitor is starting to malfunction, that's the very first sign of underpowered battery.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: Timex heart rate monitor does not keep correct BPM. I changed the battery, now the heart rate hovers in the 30' and 40's, never getting to the correct BPM

Make sure the back of the watch is spotless and your skin isn't too dry.

SOURCE: Inaccurate Measurements of heart rate

Replace the battery. Then make sure that it is placed on the proper artery that it is supposed to be on. If your heart rate was 210 you would be in the hospital with a heart attack. And also the only person I know with a heart rate of 90 when running is Lance Armstrong. Your heart rate should be about 120 to 135 and it will just around in those areas but should never go higher

Trouble with heart rate monitor reading heart rate.


Can't get a heart rate to show on your heart rate monitor? If there are no other issues with the watch, then most likely what you are experiencing is an issue with the Heart Rate Strap.

It is very common for all brands of heart rate monitors to have issues with measurement.

The #1 reason is poor contact with the strap and your skin. - Make sure the contacts are wet and touching the skin with good contact.
#2 reason - Weak battery, may need to replace.
#3 reason - Sensors on strap have salt build up from sweat - Clean the strap and contacts with soap and water, if deep cleaning is neccessary use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
#4 reason - Strap is too low on the body, raise as high on the chest as possible to just under the breasts. Strap too low will cause a weak signal.

If none of these seem to help, then you should contact an authorized repair center or the customer service for your brand, and see about possible repair or exchange/ return.

It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

Hello,

It sounds like most of you have the heart rate set to display in % of max heart rate. Most Polar products have the option of heart rate in BPM(beats per minute) or percentage of max.

If you look at the display during the exercise, you will see a % icon. You can turn it off in by hitting the back button and go down to HR view settings.

Hope this helps.
